Given the enforcement served to whistleblowers, I’d be ok if they took financial benefit from leaks:

Auction leaked data to foreign intelligence or companies, then make the price known. We’ve been warned enough times. That’s the only way Americans will put a price on privacy, and fines for unsecured systems will climb through the roof, with wilful enforcement by both companies and customers. And the whistleblower gets paid, better than rotting in Russia for years.

That's a great way to end up on espionage charges.
